Chart-topping alternative rock band “Grouplove,” joined by local group “Pretoria,” performed a two-hour set for students and the public at Michigan State’s Breslin Center. Hosted by the University Activities Board, Associated Students of Michigan State University and the Residence Hall Association, the Breslin was packed with hundreds of attendees for this one-night-only event.
Lilly Kowalczyk, 19, a sophomore at Michigan State University, heard about this concert just days prior, viewing a banner for the event on Instagram. Kowalczyk went with a close friend, 19-year-old Kayley Dinklemann to the event at the last minute.
“Yeah we don’t really know any of Groulove’s songs, except for “Tongue Tied,” of course, because it’s so popular,” said Kowalczyk. “Plus it was only 10 bucks, so what’s the harm?”
“We just came for the vibes, you know?” said Dinklemann, causing both girls to giggle.
Kira Vander Mullen, 18, also went to the show with many of her fellow students and friends. A freshman at Michigan State, Vander Mullen was interested to hear MSU was hosting something like a concert.
“Strangely enough, I think I saw an ad for the concert on one of those paper, triangle thingies in Holden’s dining hall,” said Vander Mullen. “It was definitely worth it to skip a study sesh to watch the show, my friend and I enjoyed relaxing for a change.”
